Middle School Program
The S.E.E.D.S. Middle School Program was launched in 2012 at Samuel Hearne Middle School. The program expanded across Toronto, supporting students in grade 5-8. Through a series of after-school workshops students explored key health promotion topics from a scientific perspective.
They applied their learning to identify and develop solutions to issues in their community impacting youth. Their work was recognized and celebrated through Community Open House events where youth presented their ideas.
The program helped youth build their capacity by developing critical thinking, problem solving and team work skills, and provided a platform for them to influence change around issues important to them.
